Here's something Vlad says in one of his posts that I found a bit amusing:
While siting at a workshop last week, I noticed that several people around me were having trouble paying attention and sitting still. The topic was interesting, the presenter was being extremely engaging and yet here they were, fidgeting. As part of an exercise in non-judgment and listening, attendants were asked to pair up and take turns give advice on problem areas in their partner’s lives. I was not surprised to see that patience was one of the top resources that people frequently wish they had more of...He then goes on to offer three meditation techniques to help us cultivate patience. Go on over there and check them out! Here's the post.
